The Food in my Beard Recipe by

Creamy Avocado Tuna Salad

This tuna salad replaces most of the mayo with avocado. Is it tuna salad, or guacamole? Out with the bad fats, in with the good!

Creamy Avocado Tuna Salad

2
7 ounce cans Tuna
2
Avocados
1
Tablespoon Mayo
1/2
Red Onion
2
Carrots
2
Celery Stalks
1
Clove Garlic
1
Lemon

Directions

  • 1 Dice the Celery, Carrots, and Onion. Grate the garlic with a microplane. Strain the tuna.
  • 2 Remove the avocado from the skin and mash. Salt and add lemon juice right away to prevent browning. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
  • 3 Serve on a sandwich or in a salad. I like it with balsamic, cucumber, and tomatoes.
  • 4 If saving some, be sure to push plastic wrap directly on the surface of the tuna to prevent browning.

One of my most frequently asked questions as Internet food sensation The Food In My Beard (eye roll), is, “What do you eat when you’re NOT blogging?”  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

I cook a lot of complex, heavy dishes on my website that are both time and stomach consuming. That is, they are not often healthy! When I am not blogging, I go for quick and easy meals—simple flavors and light dishes that fill me up without filling me out!

This Avocado Tuna Salad is something I have made at least twice a month for the past few years. Upon first glance you might think it is guacamole. In fact, when I was creating this recipe, I tried to merge guacamole with tuna salad. The avocado substitutes for the mayo to make the tuna creamy—avoiding the bad fats mayo brings to the table.

So tasty! I just might have to make a batch tonight.

I usually make enough for dinner and then lunch the next day. Avocado has a reputation for browning, so make sure to put enough lemon juice in the recipe. Also, when you put it in the fridge, press the plastic wrap directly against the tuna to prevent air from getting at the avocado.

Some balsamic vinegar, cucumbers, tomato, and lettuce make this a perfect meal!
